Private peaceful romantic coastal retreat.

Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smell of the ocean from this 900-square-foot contemporary style oceanfront retreat on one acre walkable to the beach.

The space

The house features unobstructed panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and pastoral hills. The property borders expansive state park to the west and has direct walking access through the sand dunes to the beach, farmer's market, and community center.

There are three beds: a queen in the master bedroom, one double in the second bedroom, and another double in the open loft. There are no window treatments in the home.

Wireless internet is available with your personal cellular hotspot (Verizon coverage is the most reliable) and intermittently with one of the neighboring networks.

There is NO land line, TV/video monitor, cable, WIFI or ANY internet. I use my Verizon mobile personal hotspot as needed.

There is a speaker with aux cable for listening to music on your personal device.

There is a 12 cup coffee maker that uses size 4 filters.

What an amazing retreat! Our time spent here was calm, peaceful, and extremely rejuvenating. Being able to completely disconnect and reflect was our hope and Aquene delivered on a grand scale. Thank you Pringl for being an angel in our midst. We are forever grateful and will definitely be back.

Very nice home that's is fairly secluded in Bodega Bay. About a 15 minute walk on the street leading to the house to get to the beach. Overall, very clean house, with everything you'll need to cook and relax, great views of the ocean, only about a 5 minute drive to grocery stores and restaurants, 15 minute drive to great hikes.

Beautiful home with a breathtaking view! I'm not sure that words can truly describe! Bodega Bay is a great little town to get away for awhile, and is a reasonable trek into wine country! If you want the best of both worlds, it's definitely a must. We will definitely stay again!
